Please note that due to many requests the submission of papers for the
new track of the SITIS conference dedicated to "Open Source Software
Development and Solutions", which includes topics related to geospatial
software, services and applications, has been postponed to September 4,

Do not hesitate to forward this call for papers to students, colleagues
and other lists if you think they can be interested in.

The 4th International SITIS 2008 conference
November 30th – December 3rd, 2008
Bali Dynasty Resort
Bali, Indonesia
(in cooperation with IEEE, ACM Sig App, IFIP TC 2 WG 2.13)

Track Open Source Software Development and Solutions (OSSDS)


The SITIS conference is dedicated to research on the technologies used
to represent, share and process information in various forms, ranging
from signal, image, and multimedia data to traditional structured data
and semi-structured data found in the web. SITIS spans two inter-related
research domains that increasingly play a key role in connecting systems
across network centric environments to allow distributed computing and
information sharing.

SITIS 2008 aims to provide a forum for high quality presentations on
research activities centered on four main tracks. This track focuses on
new software engineering method for Open Source Software Development and
Solution (OSSDS) in distributed and large scaled environments,
strategies for promoting, adopting, using Open Source Solutions and case
studies or success stories in specific domains.

SITIS is also dedicated to bring together scientists from the world
over, particularly from developing countries, to share and exchange
knowledge, experience and research results. When the conference is
hosted by research institutions in developing countries, a particular
emphasis will be placed on the presentation of applied research, the
organization of practical tutorials and workshops that may help address
the information processing needs of these countries, and book give away
sessions to allow conference attendees to donate  books to the local

*Important Dates*

Tutorial proposals               September  4 th, 2008
Paper Submission                 September  4 th, 2008

*Submission and publication*

The conference will include keynote addresses, tutorials and regular and
workshop sessions. SITIS 20007 invites submission of high quality and
original papers on the topics of the major tracks described below. All
submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers for
technical merit, originality, significance and relevance to track
topics.  Papers must be up to 10 pages and follow IEEE double columns
publication format.

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and
published IEEE Computer Society and referenced in IEEE explore and major
indexes. The proceedings will be mailed by the IEEE CS press directly to
registered authors after the conference. CD copies of the proceeding
will be available during the conference. Selected accepted papers will
be considered for publication in major journal.
